Re: Attributives

Carl, you help make my point. Ο ανηρ ο σοφος is attributive and therefore is not a complete sentence. So again, it seems to me that the defining difference between predicate adjectives and attributive adjectives is that predicate adjectives and their nouns form a complete sentence and attributive ad...

Re: Αυτός

I wasn't jesting because it didn't seem that Smyth viewed it as such. It's good to have the history of the use! Thanks so much!

Re: Attributives

Speaking of which, the one combination that you have not listed viz. Σόφος ὁ ἀνὴρ would need to be with a participle (rather than the indicative that you have in your examples or the imperative that I have added). That would be; Σόφος ὁ ἀνὴρ [πᾶς] ὁ περιπατῶν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ. "The husband who walks on th...

Re: Attributives

Carl when you said: "I think it works." That's in reference to my observation that attributives are phrasal and predicates are part of complete statements? Thank you for your help! Sorry, Scott. I misread your question "How does it work?" as "Does it work?" -- and then went on to explain what I saw...

Re: Αυτός

Now back to Συ δε ο αυτος ει. It may be that definitizing αυτος substantivizes it making it "He" as a title or even creates an idiom so that ο αυτος is a grammatical unit "He". I think there's no evidence for "ο αυτος" being a title. As for the Hebrew in Psa 102, I'm sure someone who knows Hebrew c...

Re: Attributives

Smyth: The Attributive Position of the Article 1154. A word or group of words standing between the article and its noun, or immediately after the article of the noun, with or without the article, precedes, is an attributive. Thus, ὁ σοφὸς ἀνήρ, ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ σοφός, or ἀνήρ ὁ σοφός (cp. 1168)... 1155. Thi...

Attributives

Can someone confirm for me that an attributive with its noun either acts upon or is acted upon by other constituents in the sentence so that the attributive and its noun are always phrasal and that the attributive and its noun function as a grammatical unit; a noun phrase. Ο σοφος ανηρ περιπατει εν ...

Re: Αυτός

David, My below comments are drawn from a dialog I've been having elsewhere: In ο ανθρωπος αυτος εστιν, αυτος is used as an adjectival intensive in a predicate position and Mounce (12.9) recommends it be Englished with a reflexive (himself) so this would be, The man himself. With ο αυτος ανθρωπος, α...

Αυτός

Psalm 101(102): 28 (27) Ψαλμι ΡΑ: 28: "But you are the same,..." "Συ δε ο αυτός ει,..." The pronoun αυτός is used three ways: (See Smyth 1204) 1.) As an intensive adjective pronoun it means "self" (ipse). 2.) As an adjective pronoun when preceded by the article it means "same" (idem). 3.) In oblique...
